Amoit 354


Developed from the Amiot 370 and the Amiot 340, converted to the Amiot 351.01 Gnome-Rhone 14N -20/21 761-kW (1,020-hp) engined prototype bomber, it was followed by production Amiot 351s and 354s. Each version had a streamlined all-metal fuselage, a tapered mid-wing with considerable dihedral and twin Gnome-Rhone 14N radial engines. They differed by the 351 having twin oval fins and rudders and the 354 a large single vertical tailplane. The Amiot 351 had shorter span and greater length than the Amiot 351.01, and was powered by two 708-kW (950-hp) 14N-38/39 radials, while the Amiot 354 was higher powered and reverted to the original tail unit.
Armament was a 20 mm HS 404 cannon on a flexible mounting at the rear of the crew canopy plus single 7.5 mm MAC machine-guns in nose and ventral positions. The bomb load was up to 1,200kg.

Eighty-six Amiot 350 series aircraft had been completed including 17 351s and 45 354s, before the Germans occupied the Le Bourget factory in June 1940.
After a number of bombing and reconnaissance missions, the Amiots were converted by the Vichy French for long-range liaison flights.
